Amalgamated Bank of Chicago Gold Plus Card

This bank seems to be a very good option for secured credit. I have not seem much around here regarding their unsecured gold plus mastercard. They appear to be well regarded and about the lowest interest rate around. Curious if any one has applied and how long it normally takes to hear back. I applied on Sunday. I am still waiting to hear anything at all.

Thanks for the bump/welcome. As for an update, I applied Sunday and they pulled Experian on Wednesday. No phone/email communication yet. I'll call once the holiday madness is over.

Re: Amalgamated Bank of Chicago Gold Plus Card

The card arrived in the mail today. 5k line on the gold plus master card. 7.25% interest (varies based on prime rate). That's less than some car loans! Only down side is this card does not yet interface with mint.com. I will probably use this one if I ever have to carry a balance. In case anyone is wondering my EX score was around 720 (FAKO), 2 INQ, 0% util. I have a 90 day late from 2005.
